Sen. Kamala Harris got scolded by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer during Friday’s press conference related to new developments of the Senate impeachment trial.
The incident took place after Kamala slammed GOP Senators for not wanting to subpoena documents and witnesses, which led her to declare that “this was not a fair trial.”
“Therefore, they can not walk out of this building and allege and assert that there has been a true acquittal. There will be no acquittal if there is not a fair trial,” Kamala said before walking off.
Once Schumer approached the podium, Sen. Harris was seen in the background grabbing Sen. Sherrod Brown’s lapel on his sport coat, laughing and not paying attention to what one of the reporters were asking.
Schumer immediately turned and stopped the commotion between Harris and Brown as he quietly uttered, “Come on, come on. Listen.”
Kamala reacted by giving Schumer an awkward look, crossed her arms and buttoned her mouth. Video Below
